Really easy, so all I did was take off the 4 push pins on the top of the grille. At this point you can pull the grill forward enough to get you hand behind it. There are 4 screws holding it to the bumper, the two on each end are pretty easy to locate but the two in the middle were a little tricky but you just got to look, you'll see them. Use a stubby screwdriver to loosen the screws, Dont be afraid to pull the grill forward quite a bit, it wont break. At this point everything is loose and you can pull the grill out, just give it a good twisting and yanking and it will pop out, its only held in by clips at this point. sorry I dont have a lot of pics but here are some.









I also Plasti dipped my wheels with the glossifier (use to be flat black), peeled the black off the lug nuts so now they are chrome, and put the red rally armor mud flaps on. I like the look although my rear passenger side flap is crooked :/ i turn a lot of heads now, i think its the red flaps lol

Red Rally Armor Flaps look DOOK as hell, and the painted black stockies make you look ricey..

I understand people get bored with their cars and want to start Unique modifications.. but some things are just Dook Status (Ricey)

Is it just the lighting in the photo? Because the emblem background looks black, instead of the factory blue.

Why would you waste your time criticizing someone else's vehicle? It's obviously not the way you would do it because it isn't your car. Quit being a troll.

DOOK?

Only info I could find on your new word are on urban dictionary...

Dook ~ The noise which a ferret makes
and
Dook ~ The University of New Jersey at Durham.

We don't make up words, or say things like "Ricer status"

Rally Armor flaps are very common in the Subaru community, especially here on Nasioc, and nothing is wrong painting stock rims.
Its fine to have opinions, its another thing to call someone out randomly when they creating a DIY walk through thread to help others, and even more your trying to call him out on things that are not related to this thread.

LOL at Ferret noises!

Loving the grill! I was amazed at how easy Plasti-dip is to apply and clean up, also even better that if you get sick of it, it just peels up. Love the Rallyarmor flaps to, your car looks great!

Thanks,
Rick
